Telehealth technology company Visibly and RestoringVision are excited to continue partnering on giving back initiatives throughout 2022 with a goal of making vision resources, programs, and glasses delivery more accessible to all across the globe.
With shared organizational missions of creating a world where everyone has the ability to receive vision care, Visibly and RestoringVision first partnered together in the fall of 2021 when they, in tandem with NewGlobe, provided over 5,000 people in Nigeria, including children, with free vision tests and prescription eyewear. Efforts were focused on communities in Lagos, Edo and Osun states of Nigeria, Africa, where access to vision resources is scarce and expensive.
This initiative was geared towards helping previously undiagnosed as well as already diagnosed patients in NewGlobe’s Nigerian ecosystem of more than 30,000 teachers, more than 1 million pupils, and others in the communities where schools and education partnerships operate.
In December of 2021, Visibly and RestoringVision continued their partnership with a giving back campaign focused on enabling people around the world to have access to reading glasses. Through this campaign, we were able to help over 3,700 people receive access to eyewear free of charge.
As we progress into 2022, the partnership between Visibly and RestoringVision has exciting plans continuing to give back to our communities, starting with Healthy Vision Month in May. In tandem with the CDC’s efforts, both companies will be working together to educate others on the importance of vision and eye care. Stay tuned for more as we celebrate Healthy Vision Month!
